scratches on my arms which look suspiciously like a junkie's needle
marks" I know the guys in the band quite well, they are a cynical lot
and if
I told them the truth their response would almost certainly be, "That's
original one".


Tell those band mates that the scratches resulted from an attack by a
bunch of crazed young female groupies at your last gig and wear them
proudly.  :-)
